Hidden Hinge Envelope Mini Album

Hello everyone! I have been having so much fun, making these mini albums! As I told you last week, I've been bitten by the mini album bug. I've been searching you tube for a while now, looking at all those mini albums everyone is making and there are so many wonderful videos out there. They are amazing! Just go to You Tube and type in what ever book you are looking to make................Laura Denison of Follow The Paper Trail and Kathy Orta of Paper Phenomenon are a great start! There are so many other great ones out there, the bug will bite you too! Lol

Here is my latest Mini Album. It is the Hidden Hinge Envelope Mini. Check it out and then go search for yourself on You Tube. You'll either be glad you did, or sad you did! Lol

Paper Bag Mini Album..............Part Two

Happy Sunday everyone! On my last post, I started a paper bag mini album using the brown lunch bags you can purchase from the grocery store. As I got into making this, I realized why almost everyone uses the bags you can purchase at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Well, I'm about to tell you.

The reason I didn't finish the first mini album, is because there were so many measurements that were inconsistent that it was frustrating. So, I bit the bullet and bought a pack of those bags. They are found in the party section. There are 12 bags in the package, so you can actually make 2 mini albums out of one package. They run about $3.00 or so. I think that's pretty reasonable for 2 mini albums.

I collected all of my information on YouTube. Kathy Orta of Paper Phenomenon and Laura Dennison of Following the paper trail. Look them up. They are wonderful!

Here are my results. Sorry, the lighting isn't that great. My pictures were uploaded backwards, so scroll all the way down and follow upward. Lol! Sorry!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope this inspires you to check these ladies out, and make one too! Or three or four or maybe even five or more! I know the bug has bitten me! Lol Have a blessed day! Hugs Brenda
